Abstract :

Any course that is studied in college should have continuity of the academic structure experimented in schools. Only then, students would be able to study better. However, schools of Tamilnadu, India, do not expose the possibilities of higher education. Different subjects are studied in schools and different branches are studied in colleges. It is obvious that there is a gap in the curriculum of schools and colleges. The major problem arises when a student who studies ordinary science syllabus and chooses civil engineering for higher education. None of the fundamentals of civil engineering is taught in school. It is strange to note that students with no ground knowledge of construction choose civil engineering. It is hypothesized that this discontinuity could be one of the reasons for the poor performance of the students. This research is done to find out the importance of bridging the curriculum of school and college studies with special reference to civil engineering courses
